Discover the Enthusiasm of the Aries Child

The healthy Aries child is the trailblazer, confidently meeting the world with a powerful yet balanced sense of self – self-belief, self- assurance, self- motivation and self- confidence. Like First Light® Flower Essence No 1 Pohutukawa they are not afraid to shine their light out into the world through their radiance. It is No 1 Pohutukawa that supports these children and their pioneering attitude to life. This gift from nature supports children to develop positive attitudinal qualities, such as using their initiative and being a self-starter, enabling our young to bring forward new ideas and ways of working in the 21st century.

The Aries child carries their gifts into the world to inspire, enthuse and to take on new challenges whilst bringing forward unique concepts and ideas. At times this very yang type can become challenging to the parent.

Aries Child

As a parent I look to assist my children with First Light ® Flower Essences to maintain and sustain their balance. The three Aries essences of No 1 Pohutukawa, No 2 Native Flax and No 3 Cook Strait Groundsel are wonderful allies if a child is finding they too are overwhelmed in this area of life. Becoming head strong, willful, boisterous, or experiencing difficulty with physical hyperactivity can be some of the signs that you may want to learn more or have one or all of the Aries essences included in a blend for your child.

When equipped with a blend including No 1 Pohutukawa, No 2 Native Flax and No 3 Cook Strait Groundsel, the child can express their gifts with more ease out into the world.

These three essences will assist a child to walk confidently into new situations, seeking new experiences they have not had before and overcoming setbacks which may have made them feel inferior to others. Starting a new school, joining a new class, after school activity or sports team may be some of these times to consider.

No 1 Pohutukawa will uplift the child who is feeling timid, is easily influenced by others (peer pressure), or is the ‘over eager to please’ type. Taken in a blend No 1Pohutukawa will enable them to develop a strong sense of self.

No 2 Native Flax will assist the child who flares up quickly, or easily becomes frustrated or irritable. It is also helpful to balance willful, boisterous, difficult children and those with a tendency towards physical hyperactivity. This essence will assist the child to demonstrate patience, self- motivation and to have a positive outgoing attitude to life.

If your child is doubting their own abilities, are afraid of looking foolish or have become discouraged, No 3 Cook Strait Groundsel will assist them to find the confidence to overcome any daily setbacks they meet, assisting them to develop greater faith in self.

The three Aries Essences are fundamental in developing a healthy sense of self so that life is experienced as an interesting journey of challenge and inspiration.
